Regional projects

Across our region we're involved in significant development projects that help grow the economy of our area and deliver social impacts. These range from investing in large property projects to provide the space businesses and investors need to grow, to large infrastructure projects which make our region a more attractive place to live, work, study and invest.

The range of projects we're involved in, along with other public sector and private sector partners, is diverse. Current projects include: Inverness Campus, a thriving community of life science and technology businesses based in our capital city; Space Hub Sutherland with plans taking shape to launch satellites into space from the Highlands; the European Marine Science Park where business and research collaboration is strong, supporting the growth of our marine economy, and the Science Skills Academy investing in young people’s skills to grow our future workforce.
